Go Set A Watchman – Harper Lee: Book Review

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of those books that everybody’s read at some point or another in their lives (and if you haven’t you should be ashamed of yourself), and until now, Harper Lee hasn’t published any other work.

I can excitedly say that it’s only 5 days till I fly off to the sunny Sorrento for 5 days with my lovely boyfriend. And while I’ve been counting down the days for a few months now, there always seems to be something that needs doing in order to prepare to make the holiday as […]

Stephen King’s IT

Stephen King’s IT is one of those books everyone’s heard of in some shape or form – hopefully! – and recently, I finally got round to reading the beast of a book that it is. If you’re not aware, IT follows the past and present storylines of a group of friends who end up confronting […]

Dexter: Book vs. TV Series

There are very few occasions when I end up preferring a film/TV adaptation to the book, but Dexter most definitely managed it. After the first ten minutes, I was hooked, and after finding out my boyfriend had never seen it, I took the opportunity for a re-watching of the emotional rollercoaster that is Dexter. For […]

Exploring

When I was younger, I was never the outdoorsy type, always preferring to stay inside and read a good book. Now, while I have no less love for staying in and have a good old read, I’ve become much more appreciative for the beauty of the outdoors, enjoying going out, even if only for an […]
